SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:34 Y serás como el que duerme en medio del mar, y como el que se acuesta junto al timón.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 23:34 Verse 34. Lieth down in the midst of the sea ] He is utterly regardless of life; which is expressed very forcibly by one in a state of intoxication ascending the shrouds, clasping the mast-head, and there falling asleep; whence, in a few moments, he must either fall down upon the deck and be dashed to pieces, or fall into the sea and be drowned. Reader, if thou be a man given to this appetite, put a knife to thy throat.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 34. Yea, thou shall be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea , etc.] Not in the open sea, and the waves of it, there fluctuating and tossed about; nor in an island encompassed by sea; but in a ship at sea, a drunken man reels and tumbles about, just as a ship does at sea; hence the motions and agitations of it, and of the men in it, are compared to the reeling and staggering of a drunken man, ( <19A726> Psalm 107:26,27); or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast : where the motion is the greatest.
Or all this may be expressive of the dangers which a drunkard is exposed unto, and of his stupidity and insensibility; for though he is in as great danger as one in the circumstances described, in a storm at sea, yet is not sensible of it; which agrees with what follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 29-35 - Solomon warns against drunkenness. Those that would be kept from sin must keep from all the beginnings of it, and fear coming within reac of its allurements. Foresee the punishment, what it will at last en in, if repentance prevent not. It makes men quarrel. Drunkards wilfull make woe and sorrow for themselves. It makes men impure and insolent The tongue grows unruly; the heart utters things contrary to reason religion, and common civility. It stupifies and besots men. They are i danger of death, of damnation; as much exposed as if they slept upo the top of a mast, yet feel secure. They fear no peril when the terror of the Lord are before them; they feel no pain when the judgments of God are actually upon them. So lost is a drunkard to virtue and honour so wretchedly is his conscience seared, that he is not ashamed to say I will seek it again. With good reason we were bid to stop before the beginning. Who that has common sense would contract a habit, or sel himself to a sin, which tends to such guilt and misery, and exposes man every day to the danger of dying insensible, and awaking in hell Wisdom seems in these chapters to take up the discourse as at the beginning of the book. They must be considered as the words of Chris to the sinner __________________________________________________________________
